Established in May 2009, the Advisory Committee on Community Banking discusses and provides input to the FDIC on a wide variety of topics, including current examination policies and procedures, credit and lending practices, deposit insurance assessments, insurance coverage, and regulatory compliance.
The meeting is open to the public and will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the FDIC's main building located at 550 17th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. The meeting also will be webcast live.

Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at the nation's banks and savings associations, 5,787 as of June 30, 2017. It promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars—insured financial institutions fund its operations.
